General Education Development (GED) Testing

One way to earn your diploma is by passing the GED® Tests. The GED® consists of four subjects:

  • Reasoning Through Language Arts (includes written extended response)
  • Science (includes short answer and math calculations)
  • Social Studies (includes written extended response and math calculations)
  • Math (mathematical reasoning)


GED® Preparation classes are small and offer a review of these skills, opportunities to learn and use computers, learn about goal-setting and job opportunities and develop a plan for success beyond graduation with employment counselors and college admissions staff. 

Tuition of all GED®-level classes is $25, and financial aid is available for qualifying students. Adult Basic Education and Pre-GED® classes are free. Learn more and assess your skills at a free orientation session. View our orientation schedule to find a time that's best for you.

The Official GED® Ready

In the classes, you take the GED® Ready, which simulates the GED® test-taking experience, allowing you to practice with the types of questions on the actual test. The practice test is a good predictor of your readiness to take the official GED® tests; it also help you determine any area(s) where you need additional practice. View the official GED® practice test schedule.
